Insurance Industry Town Hall

October 28, 2020

When a CAT claim enters the litigation phase, the carrier and the insured need to find a middle-ground. While each claim in litigation is different, the process does have a blueprint, and it helps to understand the common components and various differences.

There are a litany of issues that a CAT litigation claim can present, including coverage, bad faith, subrogation questions, the role of precedents, over/under insurance, application of ‘But For’ and Reservation of Rights, and considerations for restoration.

This sixth and final session in our CAT Response 2020 Town Hall series concluded our portrayal of a fictitious island by examining how the island’s marina, impacted by a hurricane and caught in claims litigation brought on by the operator against the carrier, was resolved. Pulling from their real-world experience, our panelists discussed the ins and outs of the process and unique but not unfamiliar issues, and they explained why the facts always matter.

Topics covered include:

  • The claims litigation experience through the lens of a marina damaged during a hurricane.
  • What you need to know about the litigation process.
  • The role of the expert witnesses and why the fraud investigator’s perspective matters.
  • Common but often overlooked components you keep top of mind.
